Holcombe Rogus village dates back to the Middle Ages with its privately-owned Holcombe Court, possibly 'the finest Tudor house in Devon'. There is also a Primary School, Medieval Church, Pub and a small shop and garage. Located in the heart of this thriving village is this three-bedroomed terraced cottage, which is believed to date back to the 18 Century. It was utilised as a farm workers cottage for many years. Benefitting from oil fired central heating and double glazing, the property is presented in good order throughout. It comprises two reception rooms, cloakroom, kitchen, three bedrooms and a family bathroom with an enclosed rear garden. In addition, at the far end of South Street there is a large plot of land with a garage and off-road parking, which offers many flexible opportunities for development (STP). Offered to the market with no onward chain, a quick internal viewing is highly recommended.

ACCOMMODATION: Entering via the hardwood front door into a small porch which in turn leads to the first of the two reception rooms, currently used as a DINING ROOM. The cosy SITTING ROOM is of generous proportions and features a wood burning stove and exposed beams providing a wealth of charm, with a front facing window giving plenty of natural light. A door leads from the dining room into the CLOAKROOM, comprising WC and wash hand basin, while space and plumbing is provided for a washing machine. The double story extension to the rear of the property houses the KITCHEN which has been fitted with a range of light fronted base and wall units, off set with a dark granite effect work surface. There is a single drainer sink unit and space for a free-standing cooker and under counter fridge. The enclosed stairs lead from the dining room to the first-floor landing with a useful airing cupboard and gives access to all rooms. BEDROOM 1 is a spacious, cheerful double room with twin aspect and built in wardrobes. The room spans the full depth of the original cottage. BEDROOM 2 has a front facing outlook; this is again a double room with wardrobe. BEDROOM 3 is a single room, currently with bunk beds, but would make a perfect study. The BATHROOM is fitted with a three-piece suite including a panel bath with a shower over, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. An obscured glazed window provides natural light and ventilation.

OUTSIDE: To the rear of the property there is a fully enclosed garden which is south facing and consists of lawn and shrub borders as well as a stone patio. The brick-built store contains the oil-fired boiler and useful storage. A side gate leads to the further parcel of land situated behind the garage and off road parking, accessed through a gated drive at the far end of South Street, currently used as a productive fruit and vegetable garden.

AGENTS NOTE: We understand from our floorplan that the property is subject to a small flying freehold relating to the downstairs cloakroom.
